Lets leave the brides and bridesmaids out of this shall we and lets focus on guests as that's what most of us have the possibility of being at a wedding this Spring/Summer. Wooly coats, cosy hats and furry accessories no more can cut the mustard come warmer months.
Accessories will have to be fresh, modern and apt for the new season. Summer wedding accessories should compliment the sunny weather and not look last season, that's the rule of the thumb.
Head Gear. From chain hair crowns, pale gold chain hair combs, bow hair clips, oversized flower clips, feathered head bands to floral hair crowns, there is nothing too 'festival like' when it comes to hair accessories for summer weddings. Everything works in symmetry with pale pastel outfits and peep toes. You can still opt for something more formal and traditional like a veil headpiece, as long as it's simple and chic and made of a light, airy fabric. The key is to incorporate something floral and vibrant in your tresses to give it a boho chic kind of feel.
Phone cases. Albeit the most ignored when it comes to Summer weddings, your phone's get much more visual coverage in a crowd compared to your stilettos for instance. Hence making them the perfect accessory to make a style statement. Skip all jewellery and go all out with a fully bejewelled, 3D rhinestone encrusted phone case for a modern, youthful look. For a more conservative look, opt for a chic phone case in a soft pastel shade with a slim gold rim and a sprinkle of shimmer.
Sun glasses. How can we forget the oh-so-glamorous sunnies! As most Summer weddings are outdoors, the beautiful weather is the perfect occasion to pop out those sun glasses and pretend to be a diva, even if it's for the ceremony. Reflecting mirrored lenses and rounded frames with baroque swirls are not only limited to celebrities and the runway as every fashion blogger is donning them these days. Ditch the safe option and opt for sunnies that are pastel coloured, mirrored and in quirky shapes or co-ordinate them with your outfit. It's the perfect way to add a bit of an edge to an all-safe and structured wedding apparel.
Handbags. Be it clutches or a traditional leather handbag, you can still have fun with these and look elegant at a Summer wedding. How about a lip shaped, pastel pink glossy clutch paired an all white matte outfit? Or an undersized leather handbag in duck egg blue or pistachio green with a flowy chiffon outfit and a gilet? Whatever you choose, coloured handbags are more suited for Summer weddings. Keep them structured but in a soft candy colour to balance it out.
